An arrest was made over the weekend in connection to an attempted arson at a Madisonville business in August.

In a collaborating effort, Madisonville Police report Jarvis L. Walker-Currin was located around 2:00 p.m. Saturday by the Milwaukee Police Department after a warrant was issued on August 30th.

On August 8th, the Madisonville Police Department says officers responded to a report of an arson at Aura Salon on at 301 Arch Street where surveillance video clearly showed three suspects attempting to set the barber shop/salon on fire by throwing Malatov cocktails into the building; however, the attempt to burn down the building resulted in the arsonist accidentally catching himself on fire. You may recall, the story and video was posted on WMSK’s Facebook page.

Police are continuing their investigation and will release more information when more details are obtained.
